If you are talking about the rear swaybar link, there are new bolts with the bushings at aftermarket stores. You need to get under the vehicle and replace the bolts which usually rust to bits. I do not know what type of shelter you have to work in or available tools, but if you want to do it yourself it can be a pain to get the rusted parts off.

It is worse with the fuel tank and Air suspension bags in the area. If one side of the link fell down, for the Winter I would replace the bushings and bolt on the bad side and leave the remaining side go till Spring.

If you have a hoist, or are paying someone, put the full set of parts in. The top of the mounts are difficult to service and you can easily lose a wrench in the frame if I am thinking about the correct Model. You do have to overcome the flex built into bar by positioning the axle to minimize the tension.

If your question is about a different chassis link please advise and I will try to help you.

they can be removed by pushing in the tab and pulling up on the rest but its not recomended because in the event of a crash the headrest keeps your neck from going back too far and seriously hurting or killing you when the airbag pops

Check your fuel pressure to the Injectors at the pressure valve. Then check the wiring to the Injectors to see if they are getting power. Backtrack the Injector wiring if it is dead.

Your Crankshaft and Cam sensors would be working to supply the sparkplugs their power in the firing sequence. You need to check the part that supplies the Injectors their power in sequence.

Usually a bad TPS throttle position sensor will make a "Check Engine" light turn on. This part is on the drivers side of the Airhorn behind all the plastic Air filter ductwork. It has 2 screws and 1 electric connector. Unplug the connector and use an Ohmmeter to watch for resistance to change as you work the accelerator cable attached to the opposite side of the Airhorn. Connect the Ohmmeter to the TPS switch. The Resistance should change if the switch is good. If nothing happens, replace the TPS.

It is probably a combonation of the starter itself and just COLD weather. You can replace the starter, and it will start depending on how many cold cranking amps your battery has. But when you say that it starts when you jump it, that tells me that your battery is part of the problem. But not necessarily the biggest part of the problem.

It will be on the PASSENGER side of the engine. at the back where the engine meets the transmission. Should be two bolts that hold it onto the transmission. DISCONNECT THE BATTERY before you do anything.

Those police interceptors had a history of smelling like gas. Most commonly the problem was caused by the improper mounting of police equipment in the trunks.These holes were on the top side of the tanks. Is it possible that you new tank was installed and has been punctured by the same mounting hardware of the old tank. The symptoms would be exactly what you have described,the fuller the tank the stronger the oder, and generally do not see a leak because the hole is located on the top of the tank and is small enuff just let the oder out.

Does it only blow blue smoke for a minute or so when first started? If yes, then it is most likely your valve guide seals. This is just an inconvenience not a huge problem. Check your oil level regularly and add as necessary. You probably won't even notice oil loss from this.
Thank you,

Hi, if the battery is fully charged then it could be the starter motor thats at fault, you can check the battery by turning the head lights on the turning the key to start the car, if the lights stay bright then the battery is good.

does the car have anti theft system, if it does try locking the car with the key then unlock it and see if it then starts, if it dont and it still clicks have a listen to see if you can hear where the click is coming from, if its coming from the bottom of the engine then the chances are you need to get a new starter.

one thing you can try is if you know where the starter motor is then give it a few whacks with a hammer doing this will usually get it started but dont rely on this as it will leave you stuck so its best you replace the starter as soon as you can.

to locate the starter follow the big live lead from the battery this will then go to the starter now when you see the starter their will be 2 cylinders nest to each other a big one and a small one, now give them both a few hits with a hammer and this should get the car started for you.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

To answer your question about the fuel pump switch...yes. The location of the fuel pump cut off switch is typically located in the upper left corner of the trunk. You may need to pull the carpet down a bit to access it. If it is not in the upper left corner, then it is probably on the right. Usually, the switch is located on the side of vehicle where the fuel filler cap is. Once you locate the switch, press down on the button...you should either feel or hear a "click".

You will have to replace the entire intake manifold. Check with salavage yard or try to locate a after market part from auto parts house.

You did not specify inside or outside, but they both have springs. the spring is part of the handle assembly. Trim panel must be removed. There are a couple of big screws holding the arm rest on and spring clips around the outside diameter. Pry carefully with a screwdriver at each clip.

P0304 means that cylinder 4 has a misfire and P0305 is a cylinder 5 misfire. What this means is you may have bad spark plugs, or bad plug wires, or you may need to replace your distributor cap and rotor. I would start with plugs and wires.
